I was a lucky entry into this esteemed club this weekend. 2 years of riding and this was my first unplanned dismount. Took a turn too hot at Putnam Park, atleast too hot for me, target fixated, and left the track on two wheels. Luckily, it had been raining for several days, so the ground was a swamp. Held it up until i hit a rut and lost it. Was thrown off. In the end, i came into the pits looking like a dirtbike rider, had one swelling lump on the shin from hitting the tank, and not a scratch on the bike. After i polished her this afternoon, she was perfect again. Considering myself very lucky. Funny part is, i survived the soaking wet track during the morning, against the betting odds as i found out later, only to lose it on a dry track. Oh, well. lesson learned. And i am signed up for the next track day in May. yes!!
